Top Rated Free VPN Services

The top free VPN services provide excellent performance and security that is completely free to use. They’re perfect for budget-conscious users who wish to increase their security and privacy when using public Wi-Fi, or for intermittent use of certain websites or online services. These free services do not include all the options available with premium options.

A reputable free service must be able to cover its costs without resorting into invasive advertising or data sharing. Unfortunately, a majority of free VPNs fall under the latter category and should be avoided because they can introduce serious risks to your security and privacy. They could also be used to spread malware.

A VPN that does not restrict data usage is one of the most desired features. Proton VPN, and Windscribe are the best choices. Both are compatible with the majority of streaming platforms, and have a huge server network. They are also the only free VPNs that we tested that don’t impose daily or monthly data limitations on their users.

TunnelBear is one of our top VPNs that we have rated as top-rated. It has a good number of servers in different countries, and provides fast and consistent speed. Its interface is user-friendly with cute bear mascots. The company is located within a privacy-focused area and its no-logs policy has been verified.

As opposed to the other top-rated, free VPNs, NordVPN has a small selection of servers in Africa and experiences slowdowns when spoofing a distant location. Also, it doesn’t have explicit Netflix support.
